“The greatest joy painting gives me is to find and lose myself somewhere between a physical and an abstract world. It’s this in-between…this frontier state between the tangible and the intangible one. That is my realm as an artist.”
How did you get into painting? What are the greatest obstacles you faced and the greatest joys you got from it?
I graduated at the Institute of Fine Arts of Jan Długosz Academy in Częstochowa, the Faculty of Easel Painting, an followed the workshop of professor Marian Jarzemski.
The greatest joy painting gives me is to find and lose myself somewhere between a physical and an abstract world. It’s this in-between…this frontier state between the tangible and the intangible one. That is my realm as an artist.
The biggest obstacle I encounter every time is that I’m just an awkward introvert that normally turns red when many people pay attention to me in public!
What is your creative process like? Where does the triumph of colors of your paintings emerge from?
It comes from the xpression of form and color. I take the beauty of the world fondly, trying to disclose that which is sensuous, enlighting and precious. It’s the recording of mental recognition of the world from the borderland of contemplation and horizons of imagination. When I paint, I aim to create a new reality from the one currently existing, unique in its own way. I’m interested in abstract framing.
Your use of color in abstract forms appears as an explosion of freedom. Where would you like to lead the viewer of your paintings? What would you like him to feel?
People more and more often need to interact with something beautiful and very individual. That can be provided with a painting created by a human being. Letting the viewer identify with the author and escape from reality…my art is an attempt to awaken the sea of imagination containing memorized paintings as well as create the possibility of reaching the conscious and continuously escaping reality.
What role does the subconscious play in your art? How do you relate to it? You say that “when I paint I don’t think”…can you say something more about that and what it tells us of your interaction with this medium
Most of my inspirations come directly during the artistic process of painting. When I paint I hold to one rule – “absolutely no rules” and the whole time I concentrate on the wholeness of the painting…it has to become one in itself…I trust my intuition. From pieces of free-floating associations, emotions, memories, from that which lies in my subconscious, I give life to and draw out from the chaos, new worlds. I give rise to paintings from expanse thoughts, languages and feelings.

The best advice you have received as a painter?
”Paint, paint, paint. And then paint some more. And then keep on painting. And then paint it again. And if that doesn’t sound like something that interests you, don’t bother”.
A living artist you want to point us out? Why?
Jeremy Mann , an oil painter whose work includes perceptual painting narrative and formal investigations.
Next and upcoming projects?
I am doing an exhibition in Rome, and then without hurry, no rush… I like to ‘savor’ things ‘anticipation’ is exciting.
